Cloud Repository Settings
The Storage step of the wizard is available if you have selected the Managed by agent mode at the Job Mode step of the wizard and chosen to save backup files on a Veeam Cloud Connect repository.
Keep in mind that FQDN or IP addresses of Veeam Agent computers that you back up to the cloud repository will be visible to the Veeam Cloud Connect service provider. To learn more, see Before You Begin.
Specify settings for the cloud repository:
- From the Backup repository list, select a cloud repository where you want to store created backups. The Backup repository list displays cloud repositories allocated to your tenant account by the Veeam Cloud Connect service provider. When you select a cloud repository, Veeam Backup & Replication automatically checks how much free space is available on the repository.
- In the Restore points to keep on disk field, specify the number of restore points for which you want to store backup files in the target location. By default, Veeam Agent for Linux keeps backup files created for 7 latest restore points. After this number is exceeded, Veeam Agent for Linux will remove the earliest restore points from the backup chain.
- To use the GFS (Grandfather-Father-Son) retention scheme, select the Keep certain full backups longer for archival purposes check box and click Configure. In the Configure GFS window, specify how weekly, monthly and yearly full backups must be retained. To learn more, see the Long-Term Retention Policy (GFS) section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
Keep in mind that to use the GFS retention policy, you must set Veeam Agent to create full backups. To learn more, see Backup Settings.
- Click Advanced to specify advanced settings for the backup job. To learn more, see Specify Advanced Backup Settings.
